Python tool not sending field names to rest of workflow


Hi Community,


I am making an API call with the python tool. I am able to export a dataframe to Tableau no problem.

browse tool loads 121 fields

Select tool results window shows 121 fields

Select tool configuration window shows 0 fields

Auto Field shows 0 fields available for selection
